Tomorrow is the deadline to register to vote in the UK General Election 2017. But, why should you vote? It’s a difficult time, a snap election has been called and everything feels a bit rushed. I know that a lot of people are irritated and disenfranchised with politics and the government. So, why should you vote?
Because your voice needs to be heard
We know that there aren’t enough young people in parliament, but that doesn’t mean your voice isn’t heard. Voting means that you can have a voice and be heard.
Because you can make the change you want to see
Vote in the people you believe will make a difference and change.
Because it helps make the country a better place for you and others like you
I’ll be voting for what is important for me and the communities that I am a part of. Who will make the country better for your community? If you don’t vote then who else will?
There’s no such thing as a wasted vote, your vote could make all the difference.
Because so many sacrificed so that you could
People died so that you could vote. Don’t forget that.
Because ignoring a problem won’t make it go away
If you have a problem with the way the country is being run, complaining online won’t do anything, actually voting for the person you think is best will.
Because if you don’t, you can’t complain.
If you don’t vote, you’ve done nothing to try and stop what you want to complain about.
You have until 11.59 on the 22nd May to register, click the link here and make your voice heard.
Get registering, get voting!
